ENTROPIE is a noise and projection performance based on simultaneously generated analog signals. by Wolfgang Spahn, 2014 - 2017

Both, sound and projection are based on different analogue and digital machines developed by the artist. Each system generates simultaneously structured noise as well as abstract light pattern.

The invention of moving pictures went along with an artificial separation of sound and visuals. ENTROPIE merge them again. It makes the data stream of a digital projector hearable and gives an audio-visual presentation of the electromagnetic-fields of coils and motors.

By hacking VGA Signals, amplifying their sound and implementing both aspects in his performance he visualises the importance of the machine as an integral part of the art – an artistic reference to Vilem Flussser's concept of the 'apparatus'.

All sound gears were developed by the artist. As well as the Liquide Projectors and the video synthesizers.
